The three museums that make up the EarlyWorks Family of Museums offer a fresh approach to history education with completely interactive galleries, costumed interpreters and grade specific hands-on field trip programming. Located in downtown Huntsville, Alabama, the EarlyWorks Children’s Museum, the Huntsville Depot & Museum, and Alabama Constitution Village allow students of all grades the opportunity to experience history first hand. Every one of our field trips are correlated with teaching standards and offer a cross discipline approach, with activities that incorporate the use of drama, reading, student involvement, and lots of fun!

Traveling history trunks are available at EarlyWorks. These trunks include educational materials such as cds, costumes, artifacts, games and books based on the trunk topic. Topics include African American History, Alabama, Citizenship, Civil War, Cotton, Colonial America, Communities, Inventors, Huntsville/Madison County, Lewis and Clark, Native American History and World War II.
Teachers may pick up their reserved trunk from the EarlyWorks Children's Museum at the beginning of the check-out period and return the trunk to EarlyWorks at or before the end of the check-out period.
* There are a limited number of trunks available, and they are rotated on a first come, first served basis. Please contact us for availability at firstname.lastname@example.org
